This superstar has summoned all her formidable strength, charm and self-discipline to prove that she is, beneath it all, a fragile artist buffeted by the winds of fate and hyperfame.
She makes the point over and over, usually into the camera of her laptop, which she uses as a diary. “Stop pretending that I have it all together, and if I’m scared, be scared, allow it, release it, move on,” she tells herself. She adds softly, “I think I need to go listen to ‘Make Love to Me,’ go make love to my husband.” (That would be Jay-Z.)
Where did everyone leave off on Girls? Vulture has it covered:
Hannah: Hannah surprised herself by casually rejecting Adam’s overtures to move in and instead asking gay ex-boyfriend Elijah to be her roommate. Then she fell asleep on the subway and woke up, without her purse but with some leftover wedding cake, at Coney Island.
Marnie: She’s crashing with Shoshanna, after her blowup with Hannah, and in a post-Charlie funk, she drunkenly hooked up with the goofy officiant (Bobby Moynihan) at Jessa’s wedding.
Jessa: Married! She married Chris O’Dowd’s Thomas John, who for some reason does not have O’Dowd’s Irish accent.
Shoshanna: After accidentally doing crack — and even worse, wearing white to Jessa’s wedding — Shosh found herself the object of Ray’s odd affections. And Ray found himself as Shosh’s first. Awww.
Adam: [Bam.] Adam got hit by a van while having a shouting match with Hannah.
Ray: Last we saw, he was in bed with Shoshanna.
Charlie: He “joked” around with Marnie about ha-ha maybe ha-ha banging in the bathroom at Jessa’s wedding and then looked crestfallen when he spotted her making out with another guy. Sorry, Charlie.
Lena Dunham is a triple threat! The Girls star (right) picked up nominations for acting, directing, and writing for the HBO hit. All the haters move to the left.
